Flow and concentrations of suspended sediment, nitrate–N, phosphate–P, atrazine, and metolachlor were monitored during the spring seasons of 1998 and 1999, primarily during storm events, at a tributary station (Big Ditch) and two main–stem stations (Fisher and Mahomet) of the Upper Sangamon River watershed in east central Illinois. These three stations respectively drain 98, 622, and 932 km2 of mainly agricultural lands. Rainfall data were collected from six newly established raingage… 
Phosphorus transport pathways to streams in tile-drained agricultural watersheds.
TLDR
Concentrations of DRP and PP in tiles increased with discharge, indicating tiles were a source of P to streams, and particulate P was the dominant form during overland runoff events, which greatly affected annual TP loads.
Storm event flow and sediment simulations in agricultural watersheds using DWSM
DWSM, the dynamic watershed simulation model, was expanded with a subsurface and a reservoir flow routing schemes. The hydrology and sediment components of the model were applied to three
Timing of riverine export of nitrate and phosphorus from agricultural watersheds in Illinois: implications for reducing nutrient loading to the Mississippi River.
TLDR
A program of intensive, long-term monitoring allowed us to assess how nutrient export was distributed across the range of discharge that occurred at each site and to examine mechanistic differences between NO3(-)-N and DRP export from the watersheds and simple simulations showed that reducing in-stream nutrient loads by as much as 50% during periods of low discharge would not affect annual nutrient export fromThe Illinois watersheds.
Storm Event and Continuous Modeling of an Illinois Watershed to Evaluate Surface Water Supplies
Based on recent reviews of leading watershed-scale hydrologic and nonpoint-source pollution models, the long-term continuous model SWAT was selected to enhance with storm event simulation
HYDROLOGIC AND WATER-QUALITY RESPONSE OF FORESTED AND AGRICULTURAL LANDS DURING THE 1999 EXTREME WEATHER CONDITIONS IN EASTERN NORTH CAROLINA
This study evaluated hydrologic and water-quality data collected on a coastal-plain research watershed during a series of hurricanes and tropical storms that hit coastal North Carolina in 1999,
Dissolved phosphorus export from an animal waste impacted in-stream wetland: response to tropical storm and hurricane disturbance.
TLDR
This study revealed that some TS events caused higher DP releases than a single hurricane; however, multiple hurricanes delivering heavy precipitation totals significantly increased DP export.
Phosphorus export during storm events from a human perturbed watershed, southeast China: Implications for coastal ecology
Abstract Understanding how major storms impact riverine nutrient export to estuaries and the coastal region is crucial in the context of increasing anthropogenic climate and environmental
Erratum to: “Impact of season and road on stream crossings and river water quality in Darabkola, Hyrcanian Forest”
Nutrients are important building blocks for healthy aquatic ecosystems and are generally nontoxic; but they can change with alteration in environmental parameters. The main objective of this study

Runoff characteristics of nutrients from an agricultural watershed with intensive livestock production.
Summary Among the various agricultural activities, livestock production can have a serious impact on water resources because livestock wastes are often stored in earthen waste storage ponds and are
